Alvaro Morata Had To Pull Kieran Trippier Away From Walking Over Atletico Madrid's Badge

Alvaro Morata Had To Pull Kieran Trippier Away From Walking Over Atletico Madrid's Badge

Alvaro Morata had to pull Kieran Trippier away from walking on Atletico Madrid's crest on his La Liga debut.

After the full-time whistle, players left the field with Morata shaking hands with his teammates including Trippier who was about to walk over the club's badge.

But the Spaniard dragged him away from walking on the badge which is painted on the turf.

It appears the English right-back was unaware of what he was about to do but props to Morata for upholding club etiquette.

Trippier and Morata aren't only forging a partnership off the pitch but also on the pitch.

Trippier, who joined from Spurs for £20 million during the summer transfer window, marked his competitive debut by setting up Morata to head home in the 23rd minute.

He created Atleti's match-winning goal as he picked out the striker with a gorgeous ball from the right-flank on Sunday.

The budding partnership between Trippier and Morata was the talk of their 1-0 victory over Getafe.

Speaking after the match, Simeone said: "The first league game is not easy. It's complex.

"We faced a team who tactically moves well defensively. They have not left him space in the first half so that he can take advantage of his game."

On Trippier, the Argentine gaffer said: "He played very well with depth, quality and precision. His cross to Morata was great and he found a specialist like Morata."
